That a great resources for work them to work with. I hope the fix for good this time. it heartbreaking to see thread about the intrepid class. whiles you at it please give as the right interior too, because i can't stand it that the galaxy have a very close match with it bridge interior and the intrepid one is not.
Hey screw you! I like Voyager!
I SLAP YOUR FACE! jk I don't.
In this last post in July - 2010, you said you wanted to give the Intrepid model more love and fix the issues we've been askin for.
I know they've been keepin you busy, but we have waited patiently for a YEAR.
I was JUST thinking about this... as much as I love the Intrepid class, I've gone with the Discovery instead just because I couldn't stand looking at the two red lines racing down the back of the Intrepid... it needs to be changed, pronto. It looks completely out of place, and unless you're already using red markings on your ship it look completely off from the rest of the color scheme.
Oh well, Discovery class looks pretty sweet too... course, it's essentialy the same ship.
Cryptic artists need a lesson on relaxing UVWs. The same goes for a lot of the texture work in Champions Online. Lots of stretching, deforming, and bad UVW work. I can post screenshots if you like.
I would gladly travel to their offices (they aren't too far from me, about an hour drive) and give their art director a lecture on correct UVing. Of course I only know Max, so if they're using something else, couldn't help. Free of charge, just buy me lunch.
I've written an extensive tutorial on correct edge flow for complex curved objects using low polygon budgets. But it's in relation to sailing ship hulls. But I'm sure the same can be applied to space ships such as a Star Trek one.
Maybe I should do the same here?
I just don't want to waste my time putting one together if they will simply ignore it
ya know whats sad, Im totoally feeling ya on not using the intrepid...even though Voyager was my fav series...imo the galaxy is ugly, I am totally loving the new skin and I want to try it out...maybe when they fix the guns on the saucer...
